Accounting is part of the Financial Services Department dedicated to the effective and efficient management of the school district’s financial affairs. The primary responsibility of Accounting is to provide expert stewardship over all funds including General, Special Revenue, Debt Service, Capital Projects, Food Service and Self-Insurance funds and provide stakeholders with accurate and timely financial information. This is accomplished by establishing fiscal controls and continuously monitoring the official books and records of the District, ensuring compliance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) pronouncements, debt covenants, state and federal regulations, and District policies and procedures; maintaining conformity with the State uniform chart of accounts; and providing professional expertise and training to district schools and departments on the creation, processing and workflow of financial transactions with an emphasis placed on prompt and courteous customer service.
